Perhaps I did not explain myself: the question
is providing correct projected coordinates (i.e., UTM)
for one given point in a vector map that has arbitrary coordinates. If the
vector map has been digitized (hence it is oriented and
projected but has arbitrary coordinates), it should be a matter of
just shifting the arbitrary coordinates according to the
point that has been entered.
You might ask, why he did not get the correct coordinates
for the first point at digitizing? The answer is: because
I was digitizing a jpg file with no coordinates, then found
one conspicuous point in orthorectified aerial imagery.
I've solved the problem using another software, but would like
to find a solution within QGIS for the future.
